Abstract
  • This paper analyses the state of demersal fisheries in the North and Central Adriatic Sea (FAO Geographical Sub Area (GSA) 17) from an economic and social point of view. The analysis is performed using a set of 25 socio-economic indicators. Indicators represent a valid tool to support the decision making process in fisheries management. Economic indicators include 6 indicators on economic performance, 8 on productivity, 4 on costs and prices, and one general indicator summarising economic sustainability. From the social point of view, 5 indicators plus one general indicator summarising social sustainability are defined. Particular attention is devoted to the selection and analysis of sustainability indicators. The standard distinction among environmental, economic, and social sustainability has been held in this paper. Trends of these indicators are analysed using the so-called Traffic light system. Reference values are set according to their percentile value in the following series: > 66th percentile, 66th-33rd, and < 33rd percentile. Based on each specific indicator, the three standard colours, green, yellow, and red, are assigned to the three areas defined by the reference values at 33rd and 66th percentiles. The analysis is performed by using data available from the IREPA monitoring system along the Italian coastline on three Operational Units: bottom trawlers less than 12 metres, between 12 and 18 metres, and more than 18 meters. The period under consideration goes from 1996 to 2004. The results highlight critical conditions for the demersal fishery in the GSA 17 from the economic and social points of view, due to decreasing productivity. Even though many socio-economic indicators show low levels during the period under consideration, the sustainability indicators are not in the critical area and the fishery sector cannot be classified as unsustainable.
